That's hardly a fair synopsis… it would be like the English
reading the US Declaration of Independence, being confused by
it and someone "clarifying" by saying "King George is a bloody bastard".

I will repeat:
As I said, the PR has 2 functions: To discourage (and clarify) the FUD being spread around
regarding OpenOffice and to remind all that the OpenOffice ecosystem is fine, and will continue
to be fine, as long as we all work together (and continue to encourage that).

FOSS requires not only collaboration between developers, but also between communities.
